The rooms were basic but large and cute. The hotel was not extremely clean how ever we had two bathrooms in our family room which is always handy. The breakfast was simple yet nice, the reception modern equipped with a pool table and living area. The hotel was not quiet due to the construction of a pool, but in a...

This hotel provides simple but comfy value for money. Breakfast was ok and we enjoyed the pool table and free Wifi. The new manager Simon is a 'can-do' visionary who is taking the hotel to a whole other level by putting in a pool, having lovely gardens and refurbishing rooms in good taste. Most impressive however is Simon's phenomenal and...

The superior...

This hotel is a real gem. All staff were delightfully friendly and very helpful providing a fabulous service. Our room was comfortable, spacious, air conditioned, very clean and had a gorgeous balcony. Situated in a fantastic base location from which you can rent a vehicle (from the hotel for convenience) and explore the entire island. I loved the outdoor breakfast...
